Thank You, Lord, for the blessing of friendship and for the circle of love that surrounds all those who trust in Your name. Thank You, for the gift of fellowship and for the bonding of all those who have trusted in the Lord Jesus as their Saviour.
Thank You for the blessings we enjoy and for the love and grace that flows like a river between us, when our hearts have been made clean before the Lord and we look to Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith. Help us to laugh with those that laugh, to weep with those that mourn, to celebrate with those who are joyful and to comfort those that need us to share in their pain.
Build us up in a bond of love and friendship. Protect and provide for those friends of ours that are needy. Nourish and enrich all our lives with the Word of truth and the Gospel of grace and may we grow ever closer to each other and to You. In Jesus' name we pray,
